Math LD: Identifying Basic Number Processing Difficulties

In this blogpost Dr. Daniel B. Berch explains the difficulties in identifying math learning disabilities and how math learning disabilities may present themselves in young children. Dr. Berch identifies "transcoding" and "subitizing" as two ways in which math learning disabilities may first become clear to educators and researchers. A related resource,"How Teachers and Parents Can Help Elementary School Students with Math LD" by Dr. Berch, is cataloged separately.
